FACIAL VEIN TREATMENT
Spider veins are a common occurrence on the face and are a cosmetic concern for many men and women. Unsightly facial vessels are most often found around the nose, but are also seen on the cheeks, chin and other areas of the face. These small spider veins are usually caused by the natural aging process of the skin, sun damage, trauma to the affected site, certain skin disorders such as rosacea, or just your genetics. These veins can be very fine - as small as the the diameter of a hair shaft, or larger and more blue in color.
At Boston Medical Aesthetics our medical professionals can perform laser treatments to quickly and effectively diminish the appearance of these red/blue telangiectasias or “spider veins”. We use the latest technology of Cynosure lasers to remove blood vessels, spider veins, and red marks while causing virtually no tissue damage to the surrounding skin. This selective destruction of the blood vessels is possible because the laser beam targets the red or blue pigment in these blood vessels, and seals them so blood can no longer pass through. When the vessels have collapsed and blood no longer travels through, the red or blue veins are no longer visible.
The treatment takes only a matter of minutes and has very minimal discomfort. After the treatment, the skin is mildly red and swollen, and may require icing to reduce the local inflammation. Some treated vessels look temporarily darker for a few days, then begin to fade and disappear. Generally, patients can return to work the day of treatment. The spider veins slowly resolve over 4 weeks. One to three sessions, spaced fours weeks apart, give best results.
